Doesn't look to be any camber link length adjustment.

Nice motor mount. I am really annoyed too when I have to readjust gear mesh every time I take the motor out.
Flip the diffs and the Spur/pulley assembly. Some do this to other cars as well, like the Xray '09.

Its the same motor mount off the Schumacher CAT SX off-road 4wd buggy....seems to work ok there.

jag88:
All the carbon fiber is out in development still - the camber link mounts will have multiple holes/lengths if needed.

LATC3:
Been in testing for about 8 months or more - no worries!

As most have done, I too would like to say, Nice Friggin motor mount!

Obviously we are hungry for a little inovation.

I also like the new stand-offs (arm mounts). Much less complicated than on the MI3.

The motor mount is nice, but why not put some fins on it and make it into a heat sink right away?

Cause then they wouldn't be able to sell you the aftermarket one later

that canister holder is ingenious! cans can now be made shorter because of the lack of the need to screw from the front of the can!
= more center weight!
= 2 less screws
= more range so the spur options have expanded!

most importantly...what is the price?

i was considering the BD5, but i am now reconsidering!(depending on price)

very awesome! I'm really liking the clamp. On the cat that is such a nice thing to have!

I will have one for sure!

Is anyone going to have one at REEDY? I want to see it!

I looked at the SCHU site at its suggested retail is 350L which is something like $511usd. Not sure what street price will be but guys are complaining that the $510 for the BD5 is too high as well.

USA Street price isn't finalized just yet, but it'll fall somewhere in the $479-$499 range.
